Document Description
Western Canal Water District and Richvale Irrigation District have completed the CEQA process for a project titled Western Canal Water District and Richvale Irrigation District Water Transfers from2 018 to 2022. This document provides coverage for WCWD and RID transfers between 2018 and 2022. In 2018, RID proposes to transfer to DRWD and KCWA (collectively Buyers) up to 21,420.30 acre-feet of water made available by idling 6,491 acres of land historically in agricultural production from May through September. The DWR will store transfer water made available in May and June in Lake Oroville and convey up to 21,420.30 acre-feet water to Buyers between July and September in 2018. The point of transfer where transfer water is made available will be at Thermalito Afterbay on the Feather River. This transfer water will flow through the water river channels to the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, where it will be pumped at the SWP Banks Pumping Plants in compliance with all applicable regulatory restrictions governing SWP operations. DWR will deliver the transfer water to the Buyers' service area. The transfer water id intended to alleviate water shortages within the Buyers' service area and would not support new development.
